75% was matured in barrel (predominantly older oak, three to five years old) for ten months while the rest remained in tank. The wine was traditionally fined using egg white.
What the wine is like:
Bright ruby red, this fruity Pinot Noir offers an enticing nose of ripe, berry fruit. It is juicy and smooth with a velvety texture and lots of sweet raspberry and cherry flavours together with a touch of spice. Gentle tannins provide backbone but don’t overpower this attractive wine.
When to enjoy:
This is the perfect red for any occasion – gentle and fruity enough to enjoy on its own yet substantial and flexible enough to go with a wide variety of dishes. Serve at room temperature, although you can enjoy this wine after half an hour in the fridge on a warm day!
Suggested food pairings:
Pinot Noir loves food, especially roast lamb, game, ham, seared salmon, seared tuna, Asian flavours and anything off the barbecue.
